Ollie Watkins' 73rd-minute strike inspired Aston Villa to a win against the ten-men Blues at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Pressure is building on Mauricio Pochettino as his side are winless in their last three matches which includes a 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest.

And he now has to navigate the Blues past a Brighton side who are fresh from brushing picking apart Bournemouth at the AMEX.

Furthermore, the Seagulls have beaten Chelsea in their last two consecutive meetings.
